i finished up my CS last night and jumped on the irc just in time to catch Spot talking about rfc's. these, my friends, "*are* the dictionaries" (spot) for anything you would want to know about, such as linux. from printing and partitioning to picking your nose, it has it. so, check out these links and see if they help.

hope it helps!
